Question Any way to speed up boot time on MX19? [Solved]


Have disabled the few apps or things to load at startup but nothing seems to make a difference.

MX19 is an excellent distro, just wish boot time could be improved on a laptop with SSD.

LinuxMint presently is one of the fastest ever (for me).

Disable any services that you don't need.

you could boot in systemd mode. its probably (although not always) faster than the default sysVinit boot.

Just to write in to say that switching to systemd made a huge difference at boot speed!

Like, at least twice as fast!!

Thanks again for the tip dolphin_oracle!
